The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Philadelphia's last 7 games against Denver.

Prediction

The Nuggets have been struggling without Jokic but he might be available for this game so that will be a huge booos to their offense. The 76ers have been on fire as they're on a 6 game winning streak and just scored 137 points in their last game. They have lost only 7 games at home while the Nuggets are 12-11 on the road. However, the sixers big man Embiid is iffy for Saturday game which could be a big problem so I gotta take the Nuggets with the points.

PICK: Nuggets +4.5 (-110)
